When we begin a kitchen design project, we feel that it is important to get to know you and your specific needs before breaking ground on the project. Our kitchen designs and renovations consist of the following steps:

  1. Conceptual Design – First, our kitchen designers will sit down with you to have a conversation about your aesthetic preferences, priorities, and budget. This is the theoretical planning stage, where you can come with images of kitchen design ideas you like or we can talk through your options. A few things to consider in this stage are how you use your kitchen — are you a gourmet chef or is it an area where your kids do homework? What are your priorities? Is it more important to have a large refrigerator or to use space economically? In this stage of the kitchen design process, we also discuss wishlist items and don’t-want items — sometimes it’s more helpful to know that you don’t want another overhanging pot rack if you always seem to run into the one you currently have!

2. Design – Our kitchen designers do complete site visits to measure dimensions while finalizing the design plans according to your dream kitchen ideas. It is frequently helpful for clients to see 2-D blueprints and then stand in their own kitchen for an explanation of what will go where in their renovated space. This can help determine flow patterns and benefits of the new layout. If you’re getting new appliances, we’ll explore your ideal placement along with aspects like energy efficiency, ease of use, how they’re cleaned, and safety features — especially if you have children. Choices made in this design stage also include tile, flooring, and appliance finishes.

3. Construction – This is the exciting stage where physical work in your new kitchen has arrived! Kitchen remodeling and renovation tasks include product delivery, placement, and installation. If the layout of your new kitchen will feature expanded boundaries or the removal of a wall, this is the stage where those structural changes will occur. With our clients always in mind, we work to keep as much of your home accessible as possible during the construction phase.

4. Installation – With the arrival of the renovation materials, our remodeling contractors can put appliances, cabinetry, and fixtures in place. At this point, we also install countertops, lighting, new windows, backsplashes — just about anything that you want to be in your new dream kitchen.

5. Clean Up – Part of putting our clients first is ensuring that we are leaving their homes clean and ready for your use. We don’t leave behind building materials or put off cleaning until after our installation — cleaning is a part of our kitchen renovation process so that you can start using your new kitchen on the first night!
